soften stiff dreads?


Dread Maintenance

cheers mate, i dont they are worse case scenario crotchet dreads and are going to just let them do their thing, they have grown out at the roots about 1 1/2 inches now, i would advise anyone against this method but i was not educated enough at the time. enjoy watching them change for the better over time

Hi all i have a quick question i cant find an answer to!!!


Dread Maintenance

Hi guys, ill make it quick. so my dreads are like 7 months old or 8. i got them via crotchet.... i know, i didnt realise how bad that was till i did research after. i only went the once to get them done then soaring eagle pointed out twas a bad idea so i never went back for "maintenance" just gonna let them do their own thing and dread naturally from now on. wich they will... right? anyway the question is. how long do they need to dry? i work in construction so start early and get home late, only leaving about 3 hours to dry after a bath before bed. i have been getting up at 3.30 am to have a bath before work so i can wash them and let them air dry throughout the day. id love to wash em at night so i can get a bit more sleep but dont wanna sleep on them at night damp. they are young but quite tight so can be damp for awhile. also they are shoulder length. thank you for any advice

Need a recipie for homemade dread shampoo plz


Dread Maintenance

Hey all. Im after an easy recipie for dread shampoo that can moisturise aswell. Got my dreads done about 6months ago through crotchet method. Big mistake never went back. Just going to let em grow out and dread naturally. At least its already been sectiond i suppose but anyway i would rather make my own than pay big bucks. At least i know whats going in to it. Cheers

General Questions

one more thing i was chatting to the lady that did them and she was demanding i must come back for a maintenance in 3 months, its crucial she said. why would that be? i said no anyway.

General Questions

probably more questions than updates. i have chosen to do nothing really. having to maintain dreads seems to defeat the purpose so just let them be. i bought some knotty boy shampoo, not cos of the name just it was the closest available dread shampoo and wash twice a week. trying some sea salt spray on the ends so they hopefully knot up but other than that nothing. ive gone from them being tight to the roots to now having and inch of play so i guess they have grown out a bit over the last 5-6 weeks. i guess i just leave them alone right? the dreads themselves must be loosening up cos all the little hard to notice kinks and bumps they had at first are now alot bigger. its all cool i do like them, you can start to notice the undreaded bit before the dread now,  i just guess its part of an ugly phase and this is where patience is required. thanks for asking and any advice is always appreciated.

cheers

General Questions

ok so first off, thank you guys so much for you replys it does take a bit of weight off my chest. the thing is i dont hate them but i dont want something that has to be maintained at a salon on a regular basis as that is not what i feel dreading is about and i didnt really like them the first few days when they were really tight, not the look i was going for. i see how much the have relaxed in the 4 weeks this friday that i have had them and they look much better. i feel stupid because the 3 months before i got them done i must have researched everything about dreads, i mean every night for hours watching videos and never came across any anti crocheting stuff or what the end product would look like. the chick who did them had done her own and the look great so had no reason to worry. part of me wants to comb them out and twist and rip one at a time to keep the same sections but if you guys think the will just do their own thing over time and become "real" dreads then i can wait. what its all about right? would it be silly to use a sea salt spray on the loose ends to get them going? (femalepheremones) im from nz bro. thank guys
